our tea exclusively interviews colonel gadhafi son save our lives love he says nature's goal is to control e bay and its resources at the alliance around stop and strikes on the country. as activists from the freedom flotilla carrying humanitarian aid for the palestinians in gaza are demanding explanations from big recall story authorities charged burned by itself from the loopholes they believe the decision was made under pressure from israel and the u.s. . and they are very welcome to the program this is all she's weekly review i'm. story now greece is to get its latest payout from the un the next two weeks according to eurozone finance ministers they also plan to focus on discussing a second bailout for the country the release of the twelve billion euro trash and
it does at the fourth came however at a price which has outraged the greek public the greek parliament radical stares he was demanded by the u.n. international monetary fund including some off of state assets and so with the budget cuts. there's almost eighty billion euro m.p.'s now already but it's the measures despite widespread public because the show with protesters saying the current started watching and people not responsible for the economic mess three days of demonstrations left hundreds injured as angry crowds clashed with police who responded with tear gas and stun grenades and financial journalist demetri coffin has has been with protesters and syntagma square the focal point of an arrest. i think the only real option for them right now for the protesters and for the greek people is if some sort of political option or movement develops out of the society out of the ranks of ordinary people who are intelligent or capable who come from universities who have some idea of what the country needs cording to
scholars here in greece will cost to tional scholars and former members of the government they claim that the measure simply unconstitutional the first place because you need one hundred eighty members of parliament to pass a sort of legislation first of all second of all they can pass whatever they like but if the people don't agree to it and the people are not willing to sit down and take it it doesn't really matter what they pass and that's what we're seeing here right now what you're looking to have happen is you're you're going to see a fall discovered at some point i said if things go it really of the violence is a really big issue because if if the violence if this results in casualties not just massive injuries then that's going to that's going to lead to a collapse of this government will that mean that the next government will come in and actually do something productive maybe maybe not but then i'd have to fall to i don't see the people in this country lying down there's a report that the head of the pharmaceutical national pharmaceutical station here in greece is going to be filing a lawsuit along with other people against the government for use of illegal substances because these weren't just it was just here gas there were other chemicals including a sixteen agents and that's why you see a lot of people here i saw them myself and
a lot of people other people saw them passing out not being able to breathe he points out the metro station not being able to breathe a lot before the hospital for that reason people are very angry here and a very upset and they understand what's going on and then are sent these measures are not going to help them and their future. and the fear that the you cash one how high critics of. that money will be released to pay off find out how people have greens africans. on the streets and voices of discontent and where are they now that. it's a war we did not create this bit so i know going to pay for this that we want that they got elected but that's. continues to fight against economic ruin. and attempts to prevent greece from defaulting on its previous lame payments the people will be seeing any. of this buyout money actually comes
into the greek economy it all goes out. the battles on save the banks and prevent a large scale financial crisis for the people the price is simply too high they see their income don't going down they see taxes taxes taxes and nothing else very money does not go to very early on me here is struggling against partial stereotyping measures and many government now faces an electorate opposed to a bailout and lots of people are asking when the. european central bank and the e.u. provided that initial. one hundred billion euros to look past the bear and move on so plan b. because they can manage another bailout package and pay back the loan for a lot of people. if that really comes to the troika many people now in greece simply don't want to help their actions as being poor and to self interest.
as much as. the. problem. and they are. almost. certainly come as a high cost for the cuts in public spending raising taxes and then the question of privatization program they would need to sell many quick public assets one of the reasons that everybody is so determined to keep greece in the euro is so that the banks don't have to take a serious hit on their faulty lending policies and it's almost as if there's a holy alarms of politicians and bankers versus ordinary people it's a fight that the people say they're not prepared to live. artie. and greece was not the only country gripped by approaches this week as u.k.
public sector workers went on strike on thursday disrupting schools apples and other services hundreds of thousands of union members to pass demanding the conservative liberal coalition government with things plans to cut their pensions as it slashes eighty billion pounds equivalent to one hundred thirteen billion dollars from public spending on his war and it reports. down tools are with industrial action and autumn of discontent starts here this time it's the public sector workers walking out unhappy with the planned reform of their pensions which they say will see them paying a lot more and getting a lot less but they kept saying it was meant. that if it worked for me to think he will be back in fifty eight when things like that changes that make it eventually very necessary to fix a way to address it's our i think we do need to make cutbacks in things like being
. in the quality to pensions why so much of it is to these people do a huge variety of key work from teaches and lecturers to air traffic controllers and coast guards unisons the u.k.'s biggest public sector trade union deputy chief paul babbly says his one point three million members already for prolonged industrial action we're almost a war footing we've got thirty million pain sets aside and we've got a strategy work but i must stress that's not what we want to do we want to talk to the government and negotiate a sensible package nor the ridiculous package of their proposal at the moment that package involves raising the retirement age from sixty to sixty six raising pension contributions by workers and having payouts based on average career earnings rather than final fallacy the unions admit public support is fundamental the government's
very unlikely to change its mind about reforms if the public at large doesn't back the unions but that's by no means a short public sector workers do already get very generous pensions and the cost of this pensions is very much return to the cockpit and the burden falls on to the next generation it really is absolutely essential the public sector and. reformed and even after their reforms public sector workers will get sold at pensions and just back to church workers the unions want to apply enough pressure to force the government to change its mind and it's no stranger to you turns it was hell bent on reforming the health service too until it decided to take longer to think about it causing friction in the coalition the government's doing this to reduce the current fifty billion dollar pension bill but it may be cutting off its nose to spite its face the wider issue here according to the u.k. pension fund to get
a lot of the public back to work you know don't affect their pensions what while it made me stop to be a stick to it there was a widespread withdrawal pepsico you would pull out and that would leave you k.p. i would be very short of investments just what it means that more than ever your average altie love that. this is coming out. why the u.s. being urged to abandon an airbase it's been using in pakistan. and also made a report on kira's in decision on whether to join a trade union with its eastern neighbors or learn all the links of the. bases as it's increasing as trying to rest in the bay where rebels say they are advancing find the territories that colonel gadhafi is forces to control the alliance says that's an strikes are aimed only at military targets are thousands of people have fled from their homes in fear meanwhile turkey has followed

see the reason sign here in arabic nato is here leave it to in force and i'll fly zone over the country to protect civilians on the other side there is another sign also in arabic saying that nato can attack any place at any time. time happened three times over several hours while we were filming really delivers major world is where the front line lies dividing the country two parts into to see one side is the french one flashpoint between the rebels and gadhafi forces it's a very important point to take location getting the firm hand on this town would mean taking control over the country's economy all facilities seem to be a rare target. and never land on. the civilian population can hardly state they were like my family just going to the shops to buy some foods and this happened six of them died i couldn't believe it. this used to be
a restaurant for all companies start with friends gathered after work. we were eating with my colleagues then there was a blast we knew what it was we tried to help those who were trapped but then the helicopters came and started to shoot at us. from one street to another the stories are a real problem although. there's a man every day every day did bending a big hand our civilians. from this country this is from libya well those voices become more and more frequent the sound of exploding bombs and warplanes the drowns them. out see tripoli. moscow's alarmed by their big ears interpretation of the u.n. security council resolution on libya the concern has been raised at a meeting between russian and french foreign ministers out of paris admitted supplying weapons to the rebels as the first stars as the campaign began at

past decade the mess there the way they have alienated a large portion segment of the afghan population in terms of the push them tribes the way they have conducted the war on terror they are the way they have alienated a large park it's really the country is a big reason for why we have a country ration of violence in afghanistan and how that violence is spilling over into pakistan and most pakistani commentators believe now that one of the ways short short cuts really to controlling violence and extremism on the pakistan afghanistan border is really to end the war on terror the way the us military and the way the cia he has been conducting this war over the past ten years one step forward is of course what president obama has declared but the words we're going to see really actions of the ground and we'll get to see whether important agencies within the u.s. government like the central intelligence agency the cia would really cooperate.
ukrainian special forces have traded blows with hundreds of course after violence erupted over the removal order also rise christian monument in the crimean peninsula the orthodox christian cross was aggressively the result season of dancing you raise this fight alone. and it's really just kind of proposition from some american presidents on this three hundred question question how do you. have to list the signs of the cross war started by riot police with fifteen injured to clashes the movement is being kept at a local state and possible future. the russian police say they've released all of the journalists who have been detained among protesters during celebrations of the twentieth anniversary of the country's independence according to human voice organizations police fired tear gas and peter have answered it from the rounding out some two hundred people in the capital needs

between russia belarus and thousands than began a possible move many experts describe as highly beneficial for all sides the world of goods and services produced in ukraine moralist meat market standards and are needed in these countries and the larger the market the more countries specialize in producing certain goods at the moment all of the russian lucy crane and kazakhstan produce competing goods and are not using their natural advantages so this customs union will help them become more focused at the same time ukraine never hit its aspirations to join the european union and despite moscow's reassurances that a customs union can co-exist with the free crates of europe we would all members of the customs union join its presence is no hindrance to this process russia which is also a member of the customs union will seek the creation of the free trade zone with the european union i hope that this task isn't going to be a long run constraint russell did not seem to have cried trying to sit on cheers

a good partner of dollar russia russia and kazakhstan and an economic sphere but north becoming a full scale member experts say it is impossible to tell whether such a formula would be that many stressed that the demand for most ukrainian goods and produce would definitely be higher in the russian market that in the e.u. . room of the european market is huge but it has very high standards and is heavily regulated it's really difficult work there even for strong european producers ukraine would struggle to fit in the market in the questions you need smaller but the goods produced by ukraine will be on high demand. while key of this curiously browers in britain with the east are the worst for georgia of ukrainians say the disquiet european brass tourist being seemingly greener russia is after all close the program a lot only geopolitically lets you assess the artsy reports and promptly you build your great. time now to check on some other international news and breathe this
